SwappAccess, APT Skidata’s ticketless parking solution enables drivers to plan, park and pay for on- and off-street parking through a mobile app. It can also be used to create a virtual car park for on street parking, enabling councils to bring together multiple sites into one parking management system to offer seamless parking across all facilities.
Drivers set up an account via the app with their payment details stored through a secure portal and can access parking availability via a smartphone. Multiple ID carriers can be linked to the vehicle so that the visit is recognised and paid for on departure with users receiving an email receipt and are able to manage the account online.
According to Steve Penn, sales manager for APT Skidata, the system can be adopted for use in any type of car park and tailored to meet the individual needs of each site including dynamic tariffs, discounts, surcharges and subscription plans.
